Auction rescue......

Recommended Posts

At my in-laws helping with storm cleanup and noticed hood and mower for a Simplicity in the weeds. Discovered a Broadmoor 728 which the father-in-law couldn't get started and he had decided it was going to a local auction. Following a short conversation I got it for free (sort of - several years of helping split wood for their heat was payment).

John Only unloaded it Monday morning. Will check it out later this week - have a few other projects going on I need to throw some attention at. Will update info when I get to look at it a little closer.

Nice save there! A 728 was the first simplicity tractor I restored. Mine had sat outside for 4 or 5 years and the center pivot was rusted solid. Now it looks like new and goes to some shows. Good luck with your new project!

Before I found this site, Well, even before I was on the internet, I bought a used Broadmoor from a friend for $300 with a snow blower. Then I moved in town and gave it to my step son who lived in the country. He is still using it. He told me it was all mine:) when he finishes with it:( Dan

I've had alot of those little tractors and personally like them. They do an excellent job of mowing and do quite well pushing a snowplow, with chains and weights of course. Never used a snowblower on one though in snow. The belt system for the mower can be a pain if things aren't set just right. Alot of guys don't like them and even have distain for them but I like em.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
